MOSCOW, July 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Rescuers have taken all those killed and injured in today’s deadly accident in the Moscow metro out of damaged subway cars, Deputy Mayor Pyotr Biryukov said Tuesday.
“All those injured have been unblocked,” Biryukov said during a phone conference in the Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM).
Some 21 people were killed in the tragic accident that took place at 8:39 a.m. Moscow time (4:39 UTC) on Tuesday on the stretch of the west-bound "blue" line of the tremendous Russian capital’s metro network between the Park Podedy and Slavyansky Bulvar stations.
The rapidly moving train crashed entrapping all of its passengers in the underground tunnel after three of its cars derailed due to reasons that investigators have yet to establish.
According to Biryukov, 128 people injured in the accident are in Moscow hospitals and 20 people died.
“Those injured have all necessary medications in hospitals. Decisions to render financial aid to the families of those killed and injured have been made,” he said.
Rescuer have finished emergency works between the Park Pobedy (the Park of Victory) and Slvyansky Bulvar (the Slavic Boulevard) stations in the Moscow metro, Russian Emergencies Ministry Vladimir Puchkov said.
"The first stage of the rescue operation is over. Two hundred people were evacuated from the platforms in difficult conditions. There were a total of 1,200 people,” the minister said at a telephonic conference of the government commission late on Tuesday.
